Kempsville High Schoo 




High School 

The history of Kempsville High School can be traced back for a num- 
ber of years, the first school being known as Kempsville Academy. This 
school was moved to several places, until the present grammar school was 
built in 1910, with a staff of three teachers. 

The present school was built in 1924, with Mr. T. C. Anderson as prin- 
cipal and a faculty of four persons. During the first year of the school, 
both the Student Council and Kempsvillian were begun, and they have con- 
tinued until the present time. Kempsville is the only school in the county 
that can boast of such a record. 

Throughout its history Kempsville is proud of the athletics offered. 
Both the girls and boys basketball teams were started in 1924, and they 
have been a great credit to the school, having won county championships 
many times. In 1937 football was offered to the students of the high school, 
making the athletic program include baseball, track, football, and basket- 

In the 16 years of its existence at its pre.sent site, the school has made 
great strides in the realm of education. The curriculum is constantly be- 
ing improved and enlarged, and the faculty has grown from four to fifteen. 



Those of Its who have been associated 
irith the Seniors of lOH have experienced a 
distinct pleasure and a satisfaction in assist- 
ing these young ladies and i/oung men in at- 
taining many of those nolile qnalities of onr 
generation of tomorroir. Se)riors, you are 
challenged to develop further with each suc- 
cessive year your physical, mental, social and 
spiritual resources until you receive the high- 
est attainment possible. You can achieve 
greatly through a clear and powerful urge to 
accomplish something notable, through a 
superior persistence and through marked 
faith in yourself. You have the very best of 
u:ishes for your success.

Senior Prophecy 

426 Massachusetts Ave., 
Washington, D. C, 
April 27. 1951. 
Dear Gary : 

I ran across Doris Lee Ives in front of the Capitol Building', last week and we spoke 
of the good old days, back at Kempsville High. She is Roosevelt's private secretary, 
since he stalled his fifth term and, as I understand, she is well suited to her job. On 
that same afternoon, I saw Estelle Jones and Marie McCIain who were in town for the 
Nurse's Convention, here. Elizabeth Singlton is a successful nurse, here and her fiance 
is chairman of the National Boy Scout Movement. 

It is really surprising how many Kempsvillians are now in Washington. Evelyn 
Hargrove is Assistant Editor of the Washington Post and it was only yesterday that I 
read in her paper that Kenneth Lassiter is preparing for a Violin Recital at Carnegie 
Hall, in New York, next week. 

Barbara Makinson was in town last month, to report her finding nf a new element, 
which will put her in line for the Nobel Prize in Science. 

Do you remember Garland Smith? His ambition was to be a mechanic and it w'as 
exactly one year ago that he applied for a patent for his new type airplane. If you 
recall, it was in that plane that "Tiny" Robishaw set the new World's record with his 
non-stop flight around the World. It seems that "Tiny" persuaded Elmore Lewis, who 
is now a banker on Wall Street, to back him, financially. Incidently, June Bodnar is 
Elmore's secretary. 

Oh yes, my dear, and isn't it amazing how Herbert Brady worked up to the rank 
of General in the Army .<o quickly? 

When I was in New York City, the last time I decided to go down to Macy's Base- 
ment and was I surprised to find Rose Heffington in charge of the sales department, 

I hear that Lillian Longwoith and Louise Gibney are both successful nurses at the 
Norfolk General Hospital. Remember me to them if you should chance to meet them, 

Do you lemember Bob Garrene? Well, he is back in St. Louis earning his living 
for himself and his lovely family as a machinist. 

Have you seen Frances Price lately? Is she still secretary at Ames and Brown- 
ley's? I heard that Anna Hill also does office work for that concern. I am happy to 
know that Margaret Green is Sales Manager at Rice's Department Store, downtown in 

Have you seen Esther Brown since she has been stenographer in the State Capitol 
at Richmond? I understand that Ii'ene Barrett is also at the State Capitol. She is the 
Governor's private secretary. 

Write soon and tell me the news concerning all our old friends. It's a bad policy 
to forget the ones that did so much to make your life so happy at school. 

Yoths sincerely. 


Senior Prophecy — (Continued) 

Lynnhaven, Virginia, 
May 13, 1951. 
Dear Vivian: 

So glad to receive your ever-welcome letter with its interesting news, concerning 
our old friends. 

As far as news goes, I'll bet I have a bit that hasn't reached Washington, as yet. 
"Tony" and "Kitty" Ewell are the proud parents of a handsome set of twins, Boys, to 
take care of their lovely two year old girl. "Tony" is a Lieutenant-Commander, now, 
and is expecting a new commission at any time. 

Elizabeth Mast, who began her career as the Girl's Coach at our dear old Alma 
Mater was married, last week, to you know who, in Bayside. Mary Bartee, who teaches 
Home Ec, at K. H. S. was the Maid of Honor. The Bride's trousseau was designed by 
Virginia Jordon at her dress shop, where she employs Ruth Munden. 

Bill Robishaw, who owns the Robishaw Model Dairy Farm has recently laid plans 
for several new buildings, to add to his evei-expanding enterprise. The contractors for 
his latest venture are Kathleen Greenlee and Paul Large. 

Lothar Rieder has a contract for the new Kempsville High School, the foundation 
of which has just been laid. Mr. Reider's books are kept by little Ruth Sanford. 

Norfolk has certainly impioved hei- Communications System since Theodore Waters 
opened up his gigantic Bus Terminal. Ray Barnes is his illustrious business manager. 

The Williams family (John, Claudia and the six kiddies) were an exceedingly 
prosperous looking group when I happened to see them at Church, last Sunday morning. 
John's vegetables must be marketing exceptionally well. 

I went down to have my glasses changed, a few days ago and who should appear 
to wait on me but Isaac Gottlieb, who is manager of D. P. Paul's. 

Can you imagine, Vivian, "Droop" May is still trying to get through V. P. I. He's 
such a patient .soul. 

Harold Bell really does know his machines. He is the highest paid employee at 
the Naval Base. 

Dorothy Moore is doing very well for herself, it .seems, as she has a fine position at 
the Seaboard Air Lines. 

Norwood Shirley has made a remarkable business out of the training he received 
at Kempsville. His fertilizer factory is known the Country over and we should well be 
proud of him. 

Every country has its patriots and it shall not be said that K. H. S. has not pro- 
vided .some of them. For example, Dottie Jane Smith, who had a fine position in Rich- 
mond has given it up to come and teach the High School students, in the new school, 
when it opens, we hope, in September. 

Hoping this letter finds you and yours, well and happy, I remain, 

Vt';j/ shicerelii yoiim.

elected by the student body for the ijurj^ose of setting rules for school 
morale. With representatives from all classes of the high school to help 
the principal succeed in this, the students would adopt and carry out rules 
better. Four members are selected from the Senior class. The President, 
Secretary, and Treasurer are selected from these four ; three are selected 
from the Juniors with one selected as Vice-President. One is selected from 
each of the Sojihomore and Freshman classes.

Sjwiisoy Miss Taylor 

During the season of 1940-1941 the Dramatic Club has given two pro- 
ductions. The fall production was a burlesque melodrama entitled "Dirty 
Work at the Crosswords" with a heroine in distress, a villain that was 
hissed, and trueblue Harold, the hero. The Spring production was "Op-o'- 
Me-Thumb" a one-act play of a .scene in an English laundry about 1902. 
Vivian Keating and Gordon Oliver had the leading roles, with Gary Grif- 
fith as Celeste. Other parts were played by Alice Oliver, Alice Manning, 
and Mildred Burford. The play was presented at William and Mary and 
was awarded second place in the contest. 

Altogether the season was a very successful one.

In the month of December the Orchestra held a concert at Court 
School. This Club has furnished music for entertainments held at the

showing by placing fourth. 

Next year we hope to have a band organized. This will arouse music

The Kempsvillian, the official student newspaper, was founded in 1925, 
is published monthly by a staff made up of students under the supervision 
of Miss Overley. The staff is selected by the senior members. 

The air and purpose of the staff is to present a true picture of all 
phases of school life condensed into four pages. 

For the past two years the Kempsvillian has won first place in the class 
"C" schools of Virpinin. This was m^de possible by the cooperation and 
diligence of each individual of the staff. 





Glee Club 


President Elizabeth Nuckuls 

Piauistfi Doris Harrison and Elizabeth Nuckols 

Director Miss Susan Quinn 

The Glee Club is the child of an organization that has been in long 
standing a reputation of activity and musical excellence. We base this 
latter assertion on the record established at the State-wide Music Festival 
last year, and its splendid renditions in its spring: recitals. In the i)ast the 
Glee Club was composed entirely of female voices, and boasts an active 
membership comprising fifty students. The fluctuation may be partly at- 
tributed to the inclusion of Seventh grade pui)ils. The direction of the club 
and its music is created by Miss Susan Quinn. 

The purposes of the Glee Club are to provide music for the .school, 
to promote interest in choral music and harmonic rendition of voices, and 
to provide a medium of self and group expression through vocal training 
in group participation. 

It has been the goal of the director to enlarge the .scope of group sing- 
ing, and to give specific training in sight-reading. These two needs .seemed 
to be the more e.ssential in the high school. Stress has been laid on musical 
interpretation, harmonic perfection, and a geiniine love for choral and 
cla.ssic music.

Striving for quality rather than quantity the Shuttersnappers Club is 
composed of hard working truly ambitious students. To learn better 
methods of taking pictures and to practice the rudiments of elementary 
photography has been the aim of these picture conscious lads and lassies. 
Work in the dark room has become a very interesting as well as educa- 
tional hobbv for manv. 


Alma Mater 

Our high school friendships soon must sever. 
And fade as does the dying day. 
Our closest bonds must all be broken, 
As through this world we u-e)id our way. 
But yet, whatever be life's fortune. 
Though friendships fail and friends go by. 
We'll love thee still our Alma Mater, 
Our dear old Kempsville High.
